We are healthy in Year 2!
Friday 15th September | 1 comment
This week in Year 2, we started our new topic “Be Healthy”. We talked about what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy. We thought about what we typically eat and drink in a day and if we choose ‘5 a day’. We are sending home a learning log today: How do you keep healthy?
In English this week we have been using our senses to help us generate vocabulary for poetry. We particularly enjoyed using our senses to write a poem about different fruits! Can you guess which fruit we thought was sour?!
We have also started reading the story ‘The Twits’ as a class. In today’s English lesson, we used adjectives in a list poem about what is in Mr Twit’s beard. We also introduced the term possessive apostrophe.
This week in maths we have been partitioning 2 digit numbers. We used part whole models to show how to partition a number into tens and ones.
We have thought about different ways to partition numbers. For example:
36 = 30 + 6
36 = 20 + 16
36 = 10 + 26
We used this activity in class today to practise partitioning 2 digit numbers.
